Greetings from El Paso County District Clerk
As you know, on December 11, 2012, the Texas Supreme Court mandated electronic filing in civil cases in District Courts and Statutory County Courts. According to the graduated schedule, it will be effective on January 1, 2014 in El Paso County.
El Paso County has been painstakingly working since this past September to ensure a smooth transition from Texas.gov to TexFile the state’s official Efiling system. A few weeks ago we had a soft go-live to Texfile and are still currently with Texas.gov. However, our contract with Texas.gov will expire on November 29, 2013 @ 11:59 pm.
If you are familiar with eFiling on the Texas.gov system and have chosen one of the following EFSP’s approved by the Office of the Court Administration (additional EFSPs will be added once they meet the certification requirements outlined by the Office of Court Administration) you may continue to use the same EFSP with TexFile:
If not, it is imperative that you select an EFSP and register to transition to TexFile in order to avoid delays filing your documents electronically and/or delays in complying with the Texas Supreme Court mandate www.texfile.com/filers-get-started.htm
Please be sure to visit El Paso County’s E-filing Website for the updated local e-filing rules for the District Courts, upcoming training for filers and other pertinent information www.epcounty.com/efile.htm.
